This was a late night set (post Anders Osborne at The Bowl) and started just after midnight, so technically it was on 12/23 in the early morning
I scrubbed 1 loud clap from T8, 1 from T9, and 2 from T11

Jimi would be proud!
This show has some great interpretations of Jimi Hendrix songs, and have the musicianship to attempt this songbook. At times this is plain smoking, and I dare you to listen to the highlights of this show and disagree.
The guitar playing is nasty, and I feel like these two axe-men push each other to new heights. The rhythm section has that Band of Changes thump to it, that launches everyone who takes a stab at running atop the groove.
There are a few that fall short, and get a little too groovy for my tastes.
All in all, Will Bernard gives his own experience to the crowd and these guys soar to touch a couple of of these vaulted songs in all the right spots.
Hightlights for me: Them Changes, Little Wing, Manic Depression (check out Metzger on this one).
